Laboratory of diagnostics and non-destructive testing

Laboratory of diagnostics and non-destructive testing was founded in 2003 in “Aksaigasservice” JSC. At the moment “Aksaigasservice” JSC comfortably placed in local market and is one of the most powerful companies in the sphere of NDT. The laboratory is equipped with up to date equipment and has a qualified staff. The laboratory has wide range of services, the main are ultrasonic thickness measurement profiled radiography. The first type of services requires using of high class instruments and appropriate qualified staff. And radiography requires compliance with the safety rules and involved with radio-active radiation. The laboratory has been heavily used these two methods at Karachaganak field plants for thirteen years.

The main NDT methods are as follows:

  • X-ray control
  • Ultrasonic control
  • Penetrant  Testing
  • Hardness test of pipe metal during construction and operation of pipelines
  • Coat insulation testing
  • Pipe geometrics control
  • Magnetic particle test
  • Visual and dimensional test
